It is still August but the ‘cross web sites are getting hot and so is the planning for the upcoming season.
Want to brush up on your ‘cross skills and meet some cool people at the same time:
Cycle-Smart Cyclo-Cross Camp is happening Sept. 5 – 7 in Northfield, Mass.
Live on the west coast? No problem, check out the Cycle-Smart ‘Cross Skills clinic in Boulder, Co.
Have you seen Cyclocross Magazine? If you’re a true ‘cross fan you have got to get your hands on the hottest ‘cross magazine going. In fact I’ve got four copies sitting here in my office. Want one and you’re in Ottawa? Email me! Better yet, subscribe online – you won’t regret it.
While you’re at the Cyclocross Magazine web site, be sure to sign up on the forums.
Barriers… Love ’em or hate ’em they’re a reality. Might as well just get out there and practice your technique. Check out this article on Mud and Cowbells to learn how to build your own barrier – all the other kids will be jealous.
Thanks so much for the warm welcome on the WWW. I love reading your comments so post away. Yes, I will post a picture of the Ottawa Cross kit. It is in final production right now so sit tight – it is coming.
I leave you today with this question: pre-clip before the barriers or not? I want to know what you think.
